But on this occasion I rejected these option and began making breakfast for dinner. Another meal I am actually capable of making with four children running around. I chopped up some garden potatoes for hash browns, got out the eggs, and went to the freezer to get some bacon...that's when I saw it.
I was so happy to see some sausage frozen and waiting for my perfect breakfast-for-dinner. I couldn't believe my luck, I didn't know we had sausage. I pulled them out and threw them into the frying pan. As they thawed out the kitchen filled up with the aroma of some serious spices. It wasn't what I was expecting, but they were sausage so I felt confident it would all work out.
So this wonderful 'treat' was something called cheese stuffed Italian Sausage, a product I have never heard of before. Anyone who is familiar with Italian sausage at this point is probably thinking, "that would taste awful with scrambled eggs and toast." and you, my friend, would be completely correct.
If you've never heard of or used these, they tasted like they would have been delicious with pasta and fresh tomato sauce, or baked with some fresh vegetables, but with eggs and hash browns, it didn't work. Just imagine washing breakfast down with oregano, pepper, basil, and a hint of garlic.
I couldn't blame the kids for not touching the sausage, which meant they ate more of the eggs, almost all the hash browns, and left me with a plate piled high with Italian sausage, and nothing else. Thinking about it makes me want to cry.
